I advise you to turn to a more suitable specialist who understands this area, because an ordinary person will not be able to give you valuable and correct advice.

You have little to no chance for MIT. And don't waste your money with a "review".

UG GPA - low
Currently getting a MSF
GMAT - Below MIT Avg.
GMAT Split - poor

MIT is going to question why you want a second masters. Being international, your scores should be much higher. You went to a non-target and had an OK at best GPA. Your GMAT needs to be higher with a higher verbal score.

You are at UVA, which is lucky. Program is great. I would focus on gaining employment vs. trying to do anyone very similar masters.
